The original Toy Story DVD extras has a lot of information about the process of making an animated film at Pixar and I highly recommend it.

Voices are recorded pretty early in the process to provide timing for character blocking as well as lip-sync. If you have a lot of dialog in a scene you really can't do much more than layout (general blocking of characters and the camera) until you have the edited voice audio available.
